3 stars This third album has only Didier Thibault has the sole original member and was recorded 8 years after the break-up of MGP. Actually , this album just got released in vinyl under the name of Moving only. And never got a full release on CD yet except that all tracks are present on both Musea re-issues of the first two albums. Although one could fear for disaster , this album is quite fine (especially for the times) and does relate ina way to the earlier two albums.

We have here a good , relatively calm jazz-rock (not that far away from ECM fusion albums of the times) , but the music is tamer (and a bit lame) and fade a bit in comparison to the first albums. But the musicians are all fine , playing jazz rock/fusion as though they actually believe in what they are doing. One of the big differences is that the vocals are a lot more frequent and sung in french , but very pleasant and absolutely not bothersome for those who do not know French.

Anecdotical at best , you will have the album free if you get the other two albums. Otherwise , as pleasant asit is , not really wortwhile the hunt for the vinyl!
